Starchy Grant Post-Barkley Interview
Starchy Grant’s introduction to running is pretty funny and has some obscure parallels to the Barkley Marathons. You’ll have to hear how he figured out he was a good runner, and what inspired him to keep going to the hell no end of the running spectrum.
In this episode, Starchy recounts his time at Barkley this past weekend, the auspicious record he helped set, and what’ll he do differently if he’s entered in the race again. Was the hoopla what he expected? How was it grabbing the first book? And he got lost for how many hours???
I ask him details about the race–gear, terrain, maps–and get a pretty good feeling of what it’s really like out there, but steer shy of asking too much. This is Barkley, after all.
